Creative Card-iology Team April Retiring Favorites Blog Hop


Welcome to the Creative Card-iology Monthly Blog Hop

This month's theme is to make a card or project using 
any of the retiring products from the 
2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the
2023 January-April Mini Catalog.

With both the Annual Catalog and Mini Catalog retiring on May 1, 2023
make sure you take advantage of this sale with
discounts on some items up to 60% 

There are so many wonderful Stamp Sets, Dies and Paper
on sale and it was hard to pick from the Last Chance list.
I chose Paradise Palm Stamp Set and Dies as a Thank You 
to all the wonderful stampers and friends
in the sunshine state full of PALM TREES!

  • Cut a piece of Mango Melody " x 5½" (Score at 4¼")
  • Fold both pieces, then add adhesive on one side of the Mango Melody piece and adhere to one side of the Granny Apple Green. You should now have 3 panels.  Lay then so there are two Mango Melody panels and one Granny Apple Green panel. These are the three panels you will add a layer to.

  • First layer - Cut 5¼" x 4" piece of DSP
  • On a piece of Basic White scrap, stamp and die cut the following:
    both trees using Soft Suede
    both trees branches using Mossy Meadow
    stamp 2 tree buds using Mango Melody
  • Using Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green CS, die cut both with the grass die
  • Add dimensionals to the back of these 8 pieces and assemble as shown

  • Second Layer - Cut a piece of DSP 5¼" x 4", a piece of Mango Melody 3¼" x 4½" and a piece of Basic White 3⅛" x 4⅜".  Stamp the greeting in the lower Right corner using Soft Suede Ink. Stamp the two Tree Trunks using Soft Suede making sure you have enough room for the branches then stamp the branches using Mossy Meadow ink.  Add adhesive to the back of the Basic White piece and adhere to the Mango Melody piece

  • Third Layer - Cut Basic White 5¼" x 4".  On the left lower corner stamp the mound using the Soft Suede ink, then stamp the three trees using the Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Markers as shown

  • Adhere using the Seal Adhesive or Tombow Liquid Glue to adhere each of the Layers.
  • Mountain Fold and Valley fold so layer one will be on the front of the card.
  • To put the final touches on the card add Champagne Rhinestone to the front of the card.
